Run linux to administer a linux server. I’m running the same OS on my desktop as my server partition — doesn’t it make sense to do so?
To me it’s more about the focus I get from switching over. Minimizing distractions is the goal of programming. Working on Ubuntu puts me in the same place as my server, not cluttered with a completely different OS, remotely working with a combination of putty terminals and or tortoise SVN on windows.
Nah. This is much better.
It helps that there are all of daft punk’s albums on this side of the border. What better to drown out all noise?
Alright, here we go.
